Subject: silly
Isn't it silly to chop up TOO into three tracks (Cryptical, TOO, Cryptical)?

Follow Charlie Miller's lead: don't destroy the continuity, make it one track and call it That's It For The Other One.

Later it becomes fashionable to break it up into FOUR tracks (Cryptical, Drums, TOO, Cryptical)!!

Subject: Top-notch Anthem-of-the-Sun show
These shows are during the period they were recording and mixing Anthem of the Sun, a 6-month project that gave the band focus and helped them crystallize a unique and polished psychedelic sound. This is one of the shows that was used in Anthem.

China Cat sparkles, a short but brilliant shooting star. It’s followed by an energetic The Eleven. The band delivers a very tight Cryptical>Other One. I love these Anthem-era Other One’s, electric intensity with Pigpen’s organ providing color--he really goes at it in this one. New Potato is also great, again, with Pigpen an integral part of the sound. Bob sounds great on vocals, and the jam has a nice bounce to it.

Born-Crossed is a standard for Anthem fans, but it’s actually a rarity, performed only 14 times. Even rarer is following New Potato, as it does in Anthem and here. The two work well together. It sounds like some of this Born-Crossed Eyed was used on Anthem.

February 1968 is an outstanding month of shows near the end of the 6-month Anthem of the Sun recordings. The run of 2/2, 2/03, 2/14, and 2/23-2/23 Kings Beach Lake Tahoe (Dick’s Picks Vol. 22) are all outstanding shows in an outstand run of Anthem shows. You can also throw in 1/20/68, and it rivals any run in the history of the Dead.
